Are you up-to-date on your Pap test screenings for cervical cancer? If you aren’t sure, consider these facts: Every woman is at risk for cervical cancer. About 12,000 women in the U.S. get cervical cancer every year. Symptoms usually don’t appear until the cancer is advanced. But here’s the good news: Cervical cancer is one of the easiest gynecological cancers to prevent. And according to the American Cancer Society, the incidence of this cancer has gone down more than 50 percent since 1975, thanks to w...

Aspirus has established a call center for people concerned they might be infected with COVID-19 to prevent the spread of the virus and provide the most appropriate care to the communities we serve. A dedicated line of operators will direct callers to the closest regional testing location if they need to see a medical professional. The Aspirus provider who ordered your test will contact you with your results, which could take several days, depending on volumes at state labs. Do not call the Aspirus call center or the health department for your results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some FAQs to help you learn more about COVID-19. For more specific questions about the disease, its spread, prevention and other topics of a more clinical nature, please refer to our page devoted to resources from the CDC.

CDC Resources & FAQs

What can I do to keep myself safe?

The following are practical steps all of us should take:

    No face touching
  • Follow the direction of national and state agencies regarding travel, social distancing, isolation, symptom-monitoring, etc.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Wash your hands often and thoroughly – for at least 20 seconds with soap and water. Antiseptic hand gel also may be used, but washing with soap and water is best.
  • Avoid touching your face, and especially your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from others.
  • No face touching
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your shirtsleeve, not with your hand.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Older adults and those with chronic health conditions should avoid large gatherings and public places.

If I develop symptoms that are consistent with COVID-19, what should I do?

If you are worried that you might have acquired COVID-19, Aspirus wants to quickly direct you to the most appropriate care and prevent the spread of the virus. Instead of driving to your doctor’s office or other site of care, please immediately call the Aspirus COVID-19 Call Center or your local Aspirus clinic – including Divine Savior Healthcare clinics that recently joined the Aspirus system. We’ll give you important information to ensure you get the best care possible before coming to an Aspirus site.

Who decides who gets tested for COVID-19?

Aspirus providers and the dedicated operators at the COVID-19 Call Center make determinations on who should be tested based on the latest guidelines established by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local health departments. Everyone is different, and considerations are made based on symptoms, travel history, risk factors, and more.

How will I get my test results?

If you are tested for COVID-19, your results will be provided to you by the provider that ordered your test. It may take several days for you to be contacted by Aspirus with your results, as the test results come back from state labs in Madison and Milwaukee. Do not call the Aspirus COVID-19 Call Center or the health department for your results, as they can only come from the provider who ordered your test.

How can I help Aspirus?

As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, we are amazed by our communities’ profound generosity and willingness to help.

If you’re looking for ways to help, you can:

  • Stay home, help us Flatten The Curve.
  • Provide well wishes for your family and friends on the front lines of this pandemic.
  • Stay positive; we’ll get through this.
  • Donate new, in package PPE such as N95 masks, gowns or gloves.
  • Donate hand-sewn medical masks. While we’re only using CDC approved PPE at this time, we don’t know what the future will hold.
  • If you are healthy, Donate Blood. Call your local blood donation center for donation locations and dates (they may have changed).

If donating PPE, please drop at any Aspirus location loading dock and label clearly. If you have specific questions about donations, please contact your local Aspirus facility.
